Review of Maybelline Colossal Kajal


Maybelline Colossal Kajal Review

Hello everyone! Happy Sunday to you all!

Let me ask you!Am I the last one to review this Maybelline Colossal kajal? Ummm.. May be not, as this is one such product that will have the everlasting fan following unless they change it’s formulation to something that smudges!! 
Now, you might be thinking, why She isn’t posting any eye makeup on weekends for the past two weeks?
I actually changed my eyebrows shape recently and then I realize the earlier one was better as the latest one I did was a bit flatter. It looked good but as I have a chubby face it did nothing much for that. I mean arched brows which is my natural shape, looks better and gives some sharpness to the face! Which is why I want them back and.... the current state of my unruly and scattered brows going all north west south... couple of strands towards east.. is something I bet you don’t want to look!Okay so back to this maybelline colossal kajal now!

But hold on friends! I still got an Eotd for you which I am sure you are going to like and is  much better than my previous ones! Now, don’t scroll down.
Moving on!! Let me tell you, I have never been a kajal lover ever, Mum use to put kajal while I was in school but as a grown up or teenager I never used it except occasionally!!
Now, I use them for certain eye looks but look at the power of colossal... it has finally attracted me too! 

For those who use or have been using this since ages can kindly scroll down as they may be knowing it a lot more than me and those who haven’t continue reading..:D

Colossal kajal is priced at 175 INR for 0.35 g and with a good shelf life of 24 months, earlier it was 125 and 145 but still you can get it for that less! You may buy it here
First of all, I like its twist up bright yellow packaging, beautiful!! The lid is pointed at the top and when it wears off it will get a bit blunt but it can be easily and comfortably used as a kajal/ kohl or as an eyeliner.

Pigmentation is decent but it isn’t too dark but decent for a kohl and the staying power is something to praise about! As there are other kajals as well with a great dark black color which smudges badly. I can think of one such kohl from Elle 18.

I swiped it on my hand and it refuses to leave me till I rubbed too vigorously! It’s like a steal at this price. 
On the waterline it stays a lot longer for 6-7 hours, may be more or less depending on your eyes. I mean, if you have watery eyes then the time span can lessen  but smudge proof formula is superb which is the main reason behind it's praise worthy staying power!

It is safe for contact lens user too as is opthalmologically tested!!
and here is the EYE SWATCH !:

I am not going for pros and cons here as there are no cons for me!!
Just this rating below:
Rating- 5 out of 5 with a kiss!! Muahh and it isn’t PR product.:D You can buy it HERE
Also See: White Lakme Eyconic kajal

Take: I am extremely impressed by Maybelline Colossal kajal which has decent pigmentation with a great staying power and also at that price getting an easy to use retractable tube packaging is like cherry on the cake, rather than the ones that you have to sharpen!! All of which makes it a great even if you are a kohl user/lover or not, if not use it like an eyeliner. It will fare better than some of the other eyeliners that smudges.

  20. this does not stay on the waterline for me, moves down and out as if I've applied it on my lower lash line - and I don't have watery eyes these days - rather dry in fact

  25. Wow! You Are So Particular About Brows! Any Tips For Scanty and Thin Eyebrows Like Mine?

    I Loved The Swatch Although I Hardly Use Kajals.. My Frnd Loves This :)

    1. Eyebrows frame your face and can bring a massive difference, which is why I wasn't so happy about the new shape so, changing again now! :)
      I use castor oil which helped me to grow them back quickly and then you can also try to fill them which I know you do! :)
      Thank you Heena! Even I dont use kajals.
